Mobile Dimensioning: The Key to Optimal Warehouse Slotting
Slotting is the process of organizing products within a warehouse to maximize and use available storage space as efficiently as possible. The goal of warehouse slotting is to place products in the most effective locations within the warehouse, taking into account factors such as product size, weight, frequency of use, demand patterns and picking method. In a well-slotted warehouse, products are placed in locations that are easily accessible and close to the shipping and receiving areas, reducing the amount of time and effort required to pick and pack orders. The slotting process starts with knowing the precise dimensions of each product being stored.
Rugged Cases Engineered Tough – Now from 10-feet
Certified to military standards (MIL-STD) is often referred to when it comes to rugged technology. The certification includes subjecting a device to drop and shock tests, among others, to indicate to consumers how rugged the device truly is. At MobileDemand, we are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality in ruggedness, durability, and performance, which is why we not only meet the MIL-STD standards, but we are continuously innovating in order to exceed these standards. Some companies will claim their devices are designed, certified and tested to these standards, but might not be transparent in the method or results of the tests. At MobileDemand, we utilize a 3rd-party testing organization to certify the ruggedness of all our xCases – four of which have now passed the MIL-STD-810H drop test standards from an unprecedented 10-feet!
